2012 Ilmor engine belt dust

Is anyone having issues with engine belt dust? I had my belt replaced in July because it was spraying black rubber "dust" everywhere. I winterized the boat yesterday, and the new belt is doing the same thing. My air filter is completely covered in it. I tried cleaning the air filter, but couldn't get it to come out at all. I didn't try compressed air for fear of tearing the element, but running water and using the K&N cleaner didn't do anything.

The dealer made it sound like they had a bad batch of belts, but my replacement is doing it also. I also don't think the dealer cleaned my air filter when they replaced the belt, which is disappointing. I'm calling them today, but wondering if anyone else is having this problem.
